The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has banned the sale of Juul’s e-cigarettes. The Food and Drug Administration concluded that the company failed to demonstrate that its products meet safety requirements. According to the agency, the plant also contributed to the increase in e-cigarette smoking among young people.
As the FDA announced, the company’s request to remain in the US market did not include “sufficient evidence on a toxicological profile to demonstrate that selling its products would be appropriate for public health” and that it could not be used to determine who might be obligated to use them.

As a result, Juul cannot sell its own e-cigarettes in United States of AmericaThose currently on the market should be phased out. The company is one of the three largest e-cigarette manufacturers in the United States. Two of the company’s biggest competitors, Reynolds American and NJOY, have received approval to continue selling their products, but only with tobacco flavor. The sweet and fruity flavors of e-cigarette cartridges have been banned as of 2020.
Juul has been accused of specifically contributing to the growth of e-cigarette smoking, according to the Wall Street Journal, through marketing strategies and selling flavor packs designed to attract young smokers.
“The FDA dedicates significant resources to reviewing the products of companies that make up the majority of the US market. We recognize that they represent a large portion of the products available and many have played a disproportionate role in increasing the popularity of vaping among young people,” he said in Statement by FDA chief Robert Califf.
